This Day In History . . . .

On August 4, 1944, Anne Frank was discovered hiding with her family and sent to concentration camp; only Anne's father survived. Here is one of her many quotes:

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world."

Also on this day, Lizze Borden's parents were found murdered. Strangely enough, Lizzie Borden was charged with one murder of Andrew Borden, one murder of Abby Borden, and a murder charge for both of them, totaling three charges of murder. she was never convicted. She was 67 years old when she died of complications following a gall bladder surgery on June 1, 1927.

  1. Who could forget:
    "Lizzie Borden took an axe,
    and gave her father forty wacks,
    when she saw what she had done,
    she gave her mother forty-one!!"
